TO: ALL CWU BRANCHES
TUC RALLY – BLACKPOOL 19TH MARCH, 10AM – LOGISTICS
Firstly, thank you to every Branch that attended yesterday’s virtual National Briefing on the New Deal for Workers campaign and our mobilisation plan for Blackpool on Saturday 19th March.
We have now been allocated our target numbers for the rally by the TUC and if we are to deliver them, it is crucial that every Branch in the UK attends and brings as big a delegation of reps, members and family as possible. We want to create an inclusive and fun atmosphere and our Communications Department will be working on this.
We also want Branches to bring their banners and wear CWU colours. Additional merchandise will be available on the day.
The event will now commence from 10am at Blackpool Tower. The rally will set off from 11 a.m. with speeches commencing at Noon. I will be speaking alongside colleagues from across our movement.
If any attendee has mobility issues then please let us know by no later than Friday 11th March and we will do everything possible to assist. Branches should email email@example.com for assistance in this area.
Finally, the CWU will have our own PA system on the day and we are looking to create a union-wide playlist. Branches should text / whatsapp all song requests to 07907 502190.
I would like to thank branches for their work on this event. It is a major priority for the union and it is fantastic to see the work that is already underway to deliver the biggest possible turnout.
Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to the General Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
